According to CFIA, the food recall warnings issued on March 20 and 22, 2015 are rescinded. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is advising the public there is no longer evidence to indicate that the Cumin and Cumin-containing food products described above contain Almond Nuts. Consequently, based on the information presently available, there is no evidence these products could pose a risk to individuals allergic to Almonds.

The food products were recalled as a result of laboratory testing indicating that they contained undeclared Almond ingredients. However, additional testing has confirmed that the original laboratory results were false positives.

The false positives were confirmed based on new evidence regarding the cross-reactivity of Mahaleb, a spice obtained from a specific species (Prunus mahaleb) of cherry seeds, with the Almond allergen test kit. It is highly likely that the positive sample results for the ground Cumin and Cumin-containing products were due to Mahaleb contamination and not Almond
